    Why can't the 2018 iPad Pro use the iPhone's wired tethering?

    forgive me if this has been answered. I've always found using the wired (over the USB cable) tethering on iPhone to be most reliable on my Mac. So I was disappointed when I realized that it won't work on the new iPad Pro if you go Lightning ---> USB-C. Is that connection only one way? For...

    Carrier Verizon Unlimited - No throttle after 10 GB tether

    I purposefully used way over 10 GB of tether data to see if Verizon had in fact a "hard cap" on the mobile hotspot. So far, I've used about 15GB of tethering and my speeds haven't slowed down a bit. Maybe they put that wording in just to deter people from using the hotspot as their home ISP?

    Laptop tethering - non-phone options?

    Hello, Is there a USB/Ethernet port device other than phone tethering that will allow a notebook to connect to a data plan? This would be used for business, I want to set up a separate data plan for use of their laptops on jobsites. Any help would be appreciated.
